Do you have a decent speaker in your house? You know, something to turn on your favorite music when you’ve had a day or an audiobook so you can soak in the tub and block the noise from the arguing kids. If you don’t have a quality Bluetooth speaker in your house, you are missing out. A Bluetooth speaker like the Altec Lansing RockBox XL offers quality sound no matter what you are listening to, and the chance to do more than just keep your eyes glued to a screen. Here are just a few reasons you need a Bluetooth speaker in your life. 

You Always Need Music For A Party

The Altec Lansing RockBox XL has an incredibly crisp, clear sound that is especially perfect for all of those holiday gatherings…But one of the coolest features is the LED light modes that can be synced with your music! No better way to enjoy holidays than with some festive music and twinkling lights! Check out Spotify to create playlists that are perfect for any kind of party you may be throwing from decorating cookies with the kids to drinking spiked eggnog with the neighbors. 

Catch Up On Me Time 

Sometimes the only time I get time by myself is when I hop in the shower…and even that time is often interrupted with questions from my husband and children. Most mornings, I lock the door turn on an audio book, and pretend I can’t hear the questions through the door. The RockBox XL is certified IP67 waterproof rating means I can bring it right in the shower with me or even let it float in the tub! Take time out for yourself and catch up on that list of books you have been meaning to read with audiobooks. Where The Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens is a captivating tale of a young girl abandoned with the twisting, turning suspense of a love story and a murder. You won’t want to get out of the tub until the end of the story. 

Stay Informed Current Events

I am definitely guilty of reading headlines and skimming the first few paragraphs of an article before becoming distracted. So I stay up to date with some of my favorite podcasts. With the Rock XL I can bring the speaker anywhere I go and catch up on what I need to know while I clean the house, pack lunches, or as I get ready for bed. The battery lasts up to 20 hours and has a built-in USB charging port. I can listen to my favorite podcasts without having to be near an outlet and even charge my phone. New York Times’ The Daily helps me catch up on major news stories of the day in just a half-hour, and NPR News Now gives 5 minutes of updates at the top of each hour. It will help keep you up to date all day with just a quick listen. 

Fight Insomnia 

Unfortunately, many people struggle with insomnia for a variety of reasons. If you are interested in trying a little sleep aid that isn’t a pill, trying dozing off to a podcast. No need for tangled headphones or lost airpods, the Rock XL can deliver soothing sounds of sleep podcasts. Give the Sleep and Relax ASMR. The weekly podcasts feature soft, gentle sounds that will help lull you to sleep. 

Party Like It’s 1999

Remember that song? Wow, I am old. Sometimes, we just have to visit everything we loved when we were young, and the Rock XL can be linked to 50 extra house party enabled speakers. Invite everyone over for a night of reckless abandon and dance the night away for New Year’s Eve. You can turn your house into a dance party. 

Put the Altec Lansing RockBox XL on your wish list and change how you do you.
